Daylight Savings Time
No, this isn't going to be a rant or rave. The yeah or nay. The why or wherefore. But boy am I tired today. I went to bed yesterday at my regular time, to just toss and turn and think over and over again, "It really is only 8 o'clock." I think I fell asleep finally about 11. And of course, morning came calling an hour earlier than I prefer. Again I was thinking, "It really is only 5 o'clock." Which gave me approx. 7 hours of sleep. Not nearly enough. Thank heavens for lots and lots of hot water and a water heater that just keeps producing. That coupled with some strong tea and I was out the door to do my bestest. In the dark - again. I had just gotten used to watching the sunrises over Mt. Sentinel as I motored to work. Bummer. But on the flip side, it is now almost 8 o'clock and it is still light out. Good for that group of folks who like to wander about at night. A lot of people had trouble with this day today, so I have an idea. They should make the day after Daylight Savings Time (in the Spring) a National holiday! Give us the day off and let us get ourselves acclimated. Let's ease into this time warp and while we are at it, Starbucks could offer us free coffee. Now that's the ticket! Hmmm, a nice dream. But for now, I intend to slide into the hot tub, then curl up with an un-interesting book, in my cozy bed and go to sleep at 9 o'clock and hope for the best. Thinking the whole time - "It's really only 8 o'clock."
